Hard to Hold
by Julie Leto
The True Romance series – the first series based on real-life love stories!
Michael feels like he’s had the rug pulled from under his feet when he meets Anne at a music concert. And it doesn’t take long for him to realize that he’s fallen hard when they wind up living in the same apartment.
But, while he effortlessly holds her with his gaze, he withholds the embrace she longs for. Why is he so distant? Has Anne misread his signals? Though there is no doubt that she’s under his skin when Mike confesses that he harbours two secrets. He has a neurological disorder that has shadowed him since childhood and, although he’s mastered the physical tics so others don’t notice, he may never be able to hold her in his arms at night for fear of the bruises he could inflict. Yet Anne isn’t about to let Tourette’s syndrome keep her from the man of her dreams. But Mike has a second secret. Will this secret be the one that even a grand passion cannot survive?
